The official LNER 2021 Calendar features 12 original images of the Azuma fleet on the LNER route, in stations, behind the scenes and reflecting some very special moments from recent LNER history such as Azuma being greeted by Mallard at York and Flying Scotsman at Darlington as part of its launch along the route.

Images have been captured by notable regional photographers from along the route.

LNER colleagues also submitted their finest images which have been used to create a montage of photography within the calendar.

Other destinations featured in the calendar include the Crimple Valley Viaduct in Yorkshire and the picturesque Northumberland coast.

Kate McFerran, director of communications at LNER, said: “The first LNER Calendar has been created from the talent of some of our route’s local photographers as well as our colleagues who

have captured Azuma in some stunning images.

“The calendar is a demonstration of how many beautiful destinations we serve and is an opportunity to relive some of our favourite moments since Azuma launched in 2019.

"We’re looking forward to customers filling it with plans for exciting journeys and trips away with us in 2021.”

Anyone who would like to get their hands on the LNER Calendar for 2021 can now do so by ordering a copy from the new LNER Shop at https://www.lnermerchandise.co.uk/
